Gregg Williams Locker Room Rant: Kill the Head!

by at . Comments

It's safe to say Gregg Williams will never coach in the NFL ever again.

Already suspended indefinitely by Commissioner Roger Goodell - due to his role in a New Orleans Saints bounty program, in which players under his control pooled money and offered it was a reward for debilitating hits - Williams is in the spotlight again this week because audio of a speech he delivered prior to a 2012 playoff game against the 49ers has been leaked.

And it isn't pretty.

As you can hear in the video above, Williams encourages his players to "kill the head" and "the body will die."

Referring to San Francisco running back Frank Gore, Williams tells his charges: "We've got to do everything in the world to make sure we kill Frank Gore's head. We want him running sideways. We want his head sideways.”

At other points, he screams at the Saints to take out receiver Michael Crabtree's ACL and to focus on receiver Kyle Williams' head because he has a history of concussions.

The speech was recorded and released by documentary filmmaker Sean Pamphilon, who was filming in the locker room for a special he plans to produce on Saints special-teams player Steve Gleason, who is battling ALS.
